Shocking spring ice levels

Lake Superior yesterday

In case there was any doubt about it, NASA has confirmed that "ice cover this spring is significantly above normal." And with "significantly" they actually mean "are you freaking kidding me?" When the Aqua satellite passed over Lake Superior on April 20, the lake was 63.5 percent ice covered. Last year it was at 3.6 percent. It's the worst year in more than three decades by a very wide margin. - - Sploid

Your Say

The "worst" year? Worst for what?
Are there stranded AGW "science tourism" laden ice breakers, awaiting "rescue" by other stranded "scientist" laden icebreakers?
In fairness, I get the whole delayed cargo/commerce bit.

Lake Superior is covered in ice, yet Warmists blame avalanches on the other side of the world on us.

Doesn't matter. The progressives in California are already starting to tap the sap flowing from the "Cap and Trade" bonanza, or is it that it's flowing from the Saps?
As the takers in other states see the river of new money their brothers are raking in out west, they will increase their efforts to pass similar laws in their states. They will not be denied.

If a lie brings them wealth, then they will fiercely defend the lie. It was never about carbon.

"Worst" in this case is an interesting concept. Nature takes care of herself as she sees best. I'm well into the second half of my expected long life and have seen worse here in Michigan. My niece, who lives in Marquette, is loving it! She says the beaches are less crowded.
